    A sweet, entertaining retread of an ancient formula, in which opposites attract despite all the forces arrayed to push them apart.

    If you want daring or original, Fools Rush In isn't the movie to see. Like 90% of all romantic comedies, it follows a time-honored formula that allows little room for variation.
  3. Perhaps a bit miscast, and with a penchant for too many double-takes, Perry nonetheless is game.
  4. Reback's script has real substance and perception, with Alex and Isabel emerging as individuals of depth and dimension, and their story is told with humor, passion and wit.

Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry lift this well above the ordinary romantic comedy. Although the story is pretty routine, it does have the unique twist of the clashing cultures that spark a more interesting story. It's the stars that make it work. Full Review »
